    I thought this would be a fuzz face on seeing the first, blurry, distant pics, but it turns out it's an octave fuzz. Sounds like a decent little octafuzz clone.

    The toggle allows it to be used at 24v, but the best feature is a "blue LED to contribute to the pedal’s vintage vibe." :rolleyes:

    I love ehx and I say this as a friend, that is a horrible demo lol

    hopefully it will be in the range of all their other latest fuzz/dirt offerings of around $60

    Agreed. I'm not that worried about hearing somebody's chops in a demo, but they could have at least gotten someone familiar with how an octavia works. He never rolled the tone knob on the guitar back, and didn't really play around the 12th fret, where the octave really pops out on most of them.

    The octave knob (as opposed to a switch, or nothing) is interesting.

    worst octave fuzz demo ever


    doesn't seem that cool in tone, but who can tell?

    well, at least it will be cheap

    That sounded surprisingly good, considering it was going into a clean amp! I think Octavia types sound much better going into a dirty amp, and I'm sure this one will too. I'm actually interested in it

    I believe the original Roger Meyer Octavia operated around 24V, if I remember that right? Maybe this is based more on that than the Tychobrahe version? Either way, I'm sure it does the octave thing well
